Congratulations, Lynn! to Aiden! Having finally bothered to try Skype with family, Saturday, I realize how nice it will be to be able to do similar things, once the babies are born, and everyone is home, again. Your family sounds like a much bigger version of mine, farther off.
I feel good about getting in a lot of long walks, lately. Also, I feel better about making nice dinners the last several days, instead of sort of skimping on effort; and having had the groceries I've been using delivered, instead of walking to the store and rolling/lugging them home. It was just getting to be too much, but I kept being focused on other things till we were out of necessities, and it was too late to get them delivered the next day. It's good to feel a little more organized, and less worried about the strain of getting things back with me.
I feel VERY GOOD about how strong my babies seem, the last couple of days! They feel like small newborns playing in the casing of my skin, rather than tiny creatures floating inside and sometimes hitting the walls around them. I can really feel the change in their size, just in the last week.... I'm hoping they're near the three-pound mark, now.
